I have been working at McLendon Hardware part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Most customers friendly. Co-workers friendly.

Cons

Hires more part-timers so they don't have to pay benefits.
Management doesn't listen to what you have to say.
Some department leads play obvious favorites.
Management tries to force you into things you don't want to do.
Pay is absolutely horrid.
Family is favored, even if they don't put in quality work.

Advice to Management

Get a clue. The turnaround rate is so high because you have no idea how to treat your workers. Act like you value them for a chance - the bottom level is what is earning YOUR pay - treat them with respect for once.

    I worked at McLendon Hardware part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I liked working at McLendons because of the awesome customers. Pretty much steady schedule and that was nice.

    Cons

    Low pay.
    No benefits for part-time.
    No opportunities for advancement.
    Family members would get paid more than the rest of us and advance.
    Getting use to new managers every few months.

    Advice to Management

    Treat the good workers like they should be treated so you quit losing them.

    Pros

    Regular shifts, good benefits and the co-workers are wonderful. Our regular customers make me smile. Customers will come up to me often and tell me how much they love McLendon Hardware. I feel appreciated by my Manager. Me and my co-workers have worked together over 10 years and we are a family.

    Cons

    Working weekends can be difficult sometimes. When it is busy I wish we could have more help in my area.

    Advice to Management

    If you hire too many part-timers you will lose the customer service.
